@Mark Hung, Since you fixed bug 60533, I thought you could be interested in this issue...

The LibreOffice version is the image has seriously broken Arabic text; the spacing is incorrect, lots of letters overlap and even complete words are misplaced. Most probably something is seriously broken with layout of fallback fonts.

It doesn't look like that to me

The attachment is very weird, it seems to have a WMF object embedded in it. I'm not even sure it's LO that's rendering that text.

Can you reproduce this bug with a simpler document?
